Hello Reader!!
This is Arijit Bhattacharya,

I am a Ph.D. scholar at the Department of Psychology, Ashoka University, India. My area of research lies in the realm of Cognitive Neuroscience; more specifically on Auditory Perception, Music and Rhythm understanding and Dementia. I am also a student at Oxford Clinical Neuroimaging Course 2022-2023 online at The University of OxfordI have completed my bachelor's and master's degree (BTech and MTech ) in Biotechnology from School of Biotechnology, KIIT Deemed to be University. I have pursued my master's dissertation thesis from the department of Neurology at The National Institute Of Mental Health and Neuroscience (NIMHANS) followed by a training and research internship in Cognitive Neurology. To grow my knowledge further I have completed X Series Certification in Neuroscience from Harvard University Online.


I love to learn and explore different fields of neuroscience and psychology. My research area of interest includes; Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience, Music Cognition, Auditory Perception, Neuro Genetics, Memory, Attention, Dementia. It was Dr. Oliver Sacks's works and his writings which has inspired me to pursue neuroscience as my research career.

Now coming to my musical career, I was in class 5 when I picked up Sitar as an instrument to learn. Initially I started learning from Pt. Bivas Samanta. I was formally trained in Imdadkhani Gharana. After around 5 years of training I took a break because of some academic and personal concerns. When I thought of picking up sitar again I started my training as a disciple of sitar maestro Pt. Purbayan Chaterjee, and started following the Senia Maihar gharana. Now it is more than 12 years years of my musical journey and I am still learning it. 

I started writing blogs without any knowledge about the blogging world and created this blog page on my own. As I have mentioned earlier I love exploring different topics on Neuroscience, Psychology & Music, so I thought of sharing my exploration journey with you all. My focus is to make the writings lucid so that everyone can understand and somehow the writings creates awareness on those topics. Also as scientific writer I try to share my words on the field of science in a informative way and I heartily welcome you all to read and explore them. 

Hope You Enjoy...
